#26 Group B. USA: John Holder 1694-1784, m. Barbara Volck (see sample #2) > George Holder and Elisabeth Biehler > George Ludwig Holder and Elizabeth Morris > Joseph Holder and Susannah Leinbach (moved from Stokes Co. NC to Bartholomew Co.

#31. USA: donor has not responded to requests for ancestry
#32. USA: This kit was never returned to FamilyTreeDNA, but we do have ancestral information from the original submission.This family appears to have moved from Alabama to Milam Co. TX between about 1884 and 1890, based on birthplaces of children in the 1900 census. We have been unable so far to get an unequivocal identification of the donor's direct ancestors in the 1880 census, but there are hints that they connect to a family in Jackson Co. AL who trace back to John Holder and Agnes Bledsoe; see samples #7 and #29, both of which are also supposed to connect to this couple, but don't match each other.
#34 Group A. USA: Newman Jackson Holder (1818-1896), born NC, died Texas, married Martha Ann Moss in Cherokee Co. NC 1847; in Hood Co. TX 1870s-1880s, moved to Donley Co. TX late 1880s. We suspect Newman Jackson Holder is the brother of William P. Holder (see #13).
#35 Group D. USA: Joseph P. Holder b. 1797 VA, d. 1881 Searcy Co. AR > Spencer Holder b. ca. 1836 TN, d. 1890 AR > Perry Holder 1864-1946, AR
#36 Group K. USA: Thomas Peyton Holder (ca. 1815-1886), Bibb or Jackson Co. AL ? Winston Co. MS; Charles Thomas Holder (1840-1936); his son born MS, later moved to Michigan. This sample defines group K.
#37 Group D. USA: Elisha Garrison Holder
b. abt 1813 Warren County, Kentucky, d. abt 1887 Bastrop County, Texas; thought to be son of Jesse P. Holder born about 1789, Virginia. This sample appears to belong in the D2 group.
#38 Group L. USA: James Martin Holder b. 1818, m. Sally McClure, Greenville SC -> Cherokee Co. GA -> Putnam Co. GA. This sample is unique so far, and defines group L.
#39 Group B. USA: John Holder 1694-1784, m. Barbara Volck (PA; see sample #2) > George Holder and Elisabeth Biehler (NC) > Heinrich Holder and Maria Hein > Benjamin Stanford Holder and Emily George > James Henry Holder and Susanna Stewart. This sample is in Group B.
#40 Group D. USA: John Holder and Agnes Bledsoe > Moses Franklin Holder (ca. 1780-ca.1870) > Mark Holder (1802-bef 1860), lived Jackson Co. AL and Franklin Co. TN > Crocket Holder (1843-1910) born Jackson Co. AL, died Marion Co. TN. Based on the first 12 markers, this is a Group D sample.
#41 Group K. USA: Thomas Peyton Holder (ca. 1815-1886), Bibb or Jackson Co. AL ? Winston Co. MS; Charles Thomas Holder (1840-1936). This sample is from a relative of the submitter of sample #36 (group K) and matches that one exactly.
#42 Group B. USA: John Holder 1694-1784, m. Barbara Volck (PA; see sample #2) > Charles Holder (1744-1808, PA to NC) > John Holder (1773-1824) > John Timothy Holder (1812-1870) > Wesley W. Holder (1852-1930, Forsyth Co. NC)
#43 Group M CARIBBEAN: donor is from Trinidad, ancestors probably from Barbados.
#44 Group N ENGLAND: John Holder (ca. 1660-1731/32) Suffolk, England > Abraham Holder m. Sarah Driver > Thomas Holder m. Elizabeth Archer > John Holder (ca. 1771-bef. 1841) m. Mary Alderton > Thomas Holder (b. 1801) m. Sarah > Thomas Holder (b. 1829) m. 1) Ann, 2) Eliza Roe [family moves from Suffolk to Middlesex in this generation]> Thomas Holder (1857-?) m. Annie Maria Willmott > Henry Thomas Holder (1878-?) m. Elsie Amy Saunders (1891-1991)
#45 Group D. USA: Bledsoe Holder (1783-1861) and wife Elizabeth Stewart > William Lawson Holder (1821-1876) and wife Mary Ann Looney > Isaac Bledsoe Holder (1859-1935) and wife Frances Elida Ford. This sample matches sample #37 (group D) over 25 markers.
#46 Group D. USA: Solomon Holder (b ca. 1770-1775 SC, moved to Franklin Co. TN) > Ransom Holder > William M. Holder > Jeff Davis Holder. This group D sample is a perfect match on the first 25 markers for #22, a descendant of Solomon Holder through his son Wilson Holder.
#47 Group D. USA: Bledsoe Holder (1783-1861) and wife Elizabeth Stewart > William Lawson Holder (1821-1876) and wife Mary Ann Looney > Clinton Lafayette Holder (1845 Polk Co. MO-1897 Grayson Co. TX) and Comanche Delaware Strait. This sample differs from #45, also a descendant of William Lawson Holder, at only one rapidly changing marker. It is identical over 37 markers to sample #37, whose known ancestry does not go back as far as Bledsoe Holder's generation.
#48 Group O. We have no genealogical information yet on this sample, and only 12 markers have been tested. The results are unique so far in our study, and define group O. Haplogroup E-M35
#49 Group P. USA: William Holder, lived Lincoln Co. TN, died ca. 1915-1919, Madison Co. AL > John Lewis Holder. This sample defines group P.
#50 Group D. USA: George Wesley Holder (1845-1929) > William Bascom Holder (1871-1945). George Wesley Holder's father is uncertain, but he is thought to be related to samples #22 and #46, group D, probable descendants of Solomon Holder. The DNA results support this conclusion.
#51 Group Q. USA: Jeptha Holder > Branson Holder > James W. Holder > Seymour Holder > James Washington Holder, all Randolph Co. NC. Jeptha Holder is also the putative ancestor of samples #18 and #110, but #51 doesn't match either of them. We are defining the DNA results from sample #51 as Group Q. Another sample from this lineage would be very desirable.
#52. Kit was ordered in July 2007 but has not been returned to FTDNA
#53 Group J. USA: Sion Holder b. abt. 1821 NC, m. Sarah Harvill, in Harnett Co. NC 1860 and 1870 > Neill A. Holder, lived Robeson Co. NC. This sample matches #30 and #56, group J.
#54 Group D. USA: Jesse Prior Holder (1829-1920), Claiborne Parish LA > James Monroe Holder (1876-1929), Desoto Parish LA. This sample matches the D2 group.
#55 Group D. USA: Hawkins Holder (1800-1870), SC to Tishomingo Co. MS > John Oliver Holder (1843-1922), Jackson Co. AL/Franklin Co. TN to Tishomingo Co. MS > Joseph Columbus Sidney Holder (1874-1931), Tishomingo Co. MS. This sample matches the D2 group.
#56 Group J. USA: Sion Holder b. abt 1821 NC m. Sarah Harvill, in Harnett Co. NC 1860 and 1870 > Thomas Jefferson Holder b. abt 1858 NC, d. 1940 > Neill Jefferson Holder, lived NC. Except for what appears to be a recent mutation at DYS391, this sample matches #30 and #53, group J.
#57 Group R. USA: William Alexander Holder b. 1858 Greenville TN, d. 1885 Lucas Co. IA; said to be son of Johnson Holder and Nancy McKee.
This sample defined a new group, R, which now also includes samples #74 and #87.
#58 Group D. USA: William B. Holder (1870-1956) > Lester Holder (lived Oklahoma). This sample appears to match groups D2, D3 and D4. Only 12 markers were ordered, so it can't be placed more closely.
#59 Group S. England: Nathan Holder b. abt. 1770, place unknown; d. 1840 Bristol, England > James Holder 1811-1865 > Arthur Ernest Holder 1860-1937, came from England to USA, died in Florida
#60 Group D USA: Thomas M. Holder b. abt. 1778 Surry Co. NC, d. Jackson Co. AL. > Bennett Holder b. 1805 Greenville District SC, d. 1886 Lawrence Co. AR > Bledsoe "Bletch" Holder b. 1832 Jackson Co. AL, d. aft. 1880 Lawrence Co. AR
061. This kit was ordered from FTDNA in October 2008 but was never returned.
#62 Group D. USA: Charles (Charley) Holder, b. about 1803, d. after 1860, Warren Co. KY > John F. Holder (1837-1926), Edmonson Co. KY > John Franklin Holder (1874-1935) Edmonson & Warren Co. KY
#63 Group D. USA: Lane or Laney Holder, b. 1856, Perry Co. TN, probably the son of a John Holder
#64 Group D. USA: Davis M. Holder > Davis M. Holder (1854-1924) ? Benjamin Holder (1879-1945), Surry Co. NC
#65. USA: This sample comes from a family in western North Carolina, but does not match any of the other NC lines - or anyone else, for that matter. The predicted haplogroup is R1a1, but even within that group, it's an unusual Haplogroup. This will define Group T in our project. Haplogroup R-M198
#66. USA: The donor of this sample is named Holder, but he has no matches so far, with any surname, at the 25-marker level, so becomes Group U in the project. We have not yet received any ancestral information.
#67 Group G. USA: Indiana. Based on the genealogy supplied by the donor, we expected this sample to match Group B, but found instead that it belongs in Group G. Since the later generations are known from family records, we suspect that there was a confusion of two Holder men with the same name in the 19th century, presumably in Indiana where these two family lines overlap.
#68 Group D. USA: James Winston Holder (ca. 1821-after 1880) > Elbert Joshua Holder (1865-1949). Alabama > Texas. This sample matches #37, #47, and #055, and is very close to several others.
#69 Group D. USA: Joseph Holder (SC to Franklin Co. TN) > Mitchell Holder. This sample matches #22, #46, #50, #71, #92 and #98.
#70 Group D. USA: William D. Holder (b. ca. 1831, probably Virginia), lived Surry/Wilkes Co. NC. This sample is very close to #5, #18, #19, and #33, but has not been tied to any of them by paper evidence yet.
#71 Group D. USA: Dempsey Holder , possibly a brother of Joseph Holder (sample #69). The DNA analysis confirms a close relationship between these two samples. Others in the same general group are #22, #46, #50, #92 and #98.
#72 Group D. USA: John and Ann Holder, Sampson Co. NC > Jesse Holder > Malachi Holder, NC to Georgia > William McGee Holder, lived Alabama
#73 Group B. USA: John Holder 1694-1784, m. Barbara Volck > John Holder b. 1725 > Jacob Holder 1757-1828 (a Loyalist who moved from PA to New Brunswick, Canada, at the time of the American Revolution) > Samuel Holder > Robert Holder
#74 Group R. This sample matches #57 and #87, Group R. We don't have ancestral information yet.
#75 Group A. This is a Group A sample.
#76 Group A. William Henderson Holder and Nancy Hauser, Stokes Co. NC > James Wesley Holder, NC to Indiana > William Arthur Holder.
#77 Group D. USA: This participant is an adoptee whose biological family is as yet unknown. His DNA matches samples in the D2b group.
#78 Group D. USA: John L.D. Holder (1796-1873, b. GA) and Martha Suttle, lived Winston Co. MS > Elijah L. Holder (1857-1907) and Margaret Elizabeth Ferguson. This sample also matches those in the D2b group.
#79 Group D. USA: Epson Holder (1803-1888) Stokes Co. NC > Hendricks Co. IN > Wayne Co. IA. This sample is in the D1 group; the closest matches are to samples #21 and #35.
#80 Group D. USA: Willis Holder (1789-1846) Laurens Dist. SC to Jasper Co. MS > William Albert Holder (1825-1903) Jasper Co. MS > Polk Co. TX > William Price Holder (1870-1942) Tyler and Polk Co. TX. This sample is in group D2b.
#81 Group F. USA: George Holter (abt. 1750-1820), Maryland > Jacob Holter (1776-1861) m. Catherine Neff, lived MD and PA > Jacob H. Holter (1819-1902) m. Catherine Pletcher, PA. We hypothesized that this sample might match the Group B Holder family, whose name occasionally appears as Holter in early records, but it does not. The DNA profile is similar to Holder sample #10, Group F. Sample #117 is also a descendant of George Holter of Maryland.
#82 Group D. USA: William Holder (abt 1811-1875, Jackson Co. AL; possibly a son of Thomas M. Holder - see samples #29 and #060) > Joseph H. Holder (b. about 1848, m. Julia Summers; lived Carter Co. OK). This sample is in group D2b.
#83. USA: James Marion Holder born abt 1863, lived in Shelby County, TN; conflicting census records on birthdate. This sample does not match any of the existing Holder groups.
#84. USA: This sample is from a descendant of a 19th century man who took his mother's Holder surname.
#85. USA: Thomas Holder (1876-1943) and Mary Faulk > William Alex Holder (1894-1970), Alabama. This sample matches #121. Both donors are named Holder, but their other matches are to other surnames. Durden occurs frequently among the matches.
#86 Group D. USA: John Holder (born abt. 174-1786) and Rachel Morrison, Sampson / Cumberland Co. NC to Cleburne Co. AL > Green Berry Holder (1823-1905) and Mary Ann Rhodes, NC via GA to Calhoun Co. AL: Josiah Gresham Holder (1846-1909) b. Fayette Co. GA, d. Henry Co. TN. This sample appears to be in group D2b.
#87 Group R. USA: William Alexander Holder and Viola Elveta Smith, Tennessee > Iowa. This sample matches samples #57 and #074, group R. This is consistent with the histories supplied for these participants.
#88. USA: Thomas F. Holder b. about 1827 in GA or TN? d: 1862-4? (maybe killed in Civil War?) m: Mahala "Hily" McAlpin, 1845, Greene Co. TN. Thomas may have been the son of Cornelius Holder of Surry Co. NC. This sample doesn't match anyone else in the Holder project, but shows several matches to people named Campbell.
#89 Group D. USA: Elisha Garrison Holder of Warren Co. KY. This sample is a perfect match over 37 markers with sample #37, which shares the same ancestry, and also matches the group D2b samples #47, #55, #68, and #80.
#90 Group A. USA: (Adam?) James Holder (1799-1882) NC to Monroe Co. GA > Thomas Jefferson Holder (1839-1889) > John Thomas Holder (1877-1956), Henry Co. GA. This sample is in Group A, and most closely resembles sample #27.
#91 Group W. USA: William Holder b. 1793 and Sabre Keen, lived Cumberland Co. NC > William Holder b. 1816 and Nancy Mason, Harnett Co. NC > Malcolm James Holder (1851-1916) and Sarah Jane McLean. This sample matches samples #101 and #108. We suspect that William b. 1793 may have been a son of George Holder born before 1755, the earliest reported ancestor of sample #108. These samples define Group W. Their Y-Haplogroup is T-M70.
#92 Group D. USA: Solomon Holder of Franklin Co. TN > William M. Holder 1818-1910 of Madison Co., AL
This sample belongs to group D, and is closely related to #22, #46, #50, #71, and #98.
#93 Group V. USA: James Wilbur Holder of Alachua Co. FL. Samples #93 and #94 define group V. The donors are known to be relatives.
#94 Group V. USA: see sample #93.
#95. UK > Sweden > Norway. Samuel Houlder is said to have been from Gloucestershire, but was married in Wales to Sarah Jones, who was from London. They emigrated to Sweden in the 1790s, and then to Norway in the 1800s. The results don't match any others in the Holder project.
#96 Group D. USA: Daniel Holder (1796 - aft 1870) born probably VA, lived KY, m. Sally Mariah Tinsley > Fielding Holder (1834-1894) m. Elizabeth Wood, born KY, > TX > Edward Holder (1868-1956) born Muhlenberg Co, KY > Hood Co, TX> Custer Co, OK; m. Louisa Caldwell
#97. USA: Luda Holder b. 1827 SC or GA, d. 1862 in Atlanta from war injury; m. Martha Cook in Carroll Co. GA, 1846. The DNA matches sample #122. No group designations has been assigned yet.
#98 Group D . USA: Solomon Holder b. 1774; descendants to Pendleton Co. SC and Franklin Co. TN > Alfred Holder 1797 Pendelton Dist. SC to Dade Co. MO > William James Holder 1835 Madison Co. AL, to MO > Richard Willis Holder. This ancestry is closest to sample #8 in our project, but the DNA is a closer match to samples #22, #46, and #92. Samples #22 and #46 are also descendants of Solomon Holder, but through his sons Wilson and Ransom Holder.
#99 USA: George Holder ca 1750, Duplin and Sampson Counties NC. Based on location we predicted this sample would fall in group J, but it appears to be unrelated, and doesn't match any other Holder sample so far.
#100 Group D USA: Name unknown; family from Jasper, Covington and Smith Co. MS. There was a name change in this family in the 1800s, when a child took his step-father's name, but biologically this sample is a perfect match for group D2b Holders.
#101 Group W USA: Nelson Holder Ritchie (1840-1913), born in Missouri to parents whose names we don't know yet. In the 1880 and later censuses, he says his parents were from North Carolina. This sample matches #91 and 108. The common ancestor has not yet been identified.
#102 Group D USA: Elijah Newton (E.N) Holder (1865-1905), maybe born Wilkinson Co. GA, d. Bibb Co. GA > Clarence William Holder b. 1893 Bibb Co. GA, d. 1958 York Co. SC. This sample is a perfect match for #37.
#103 Group D USA: Unknown ; This DNA donor is an adoptee whose ancestry is not known yet. This sample is a perfect match for #8.
The data for the remaining samples have not yet been added to the summary and surname group pages.
#104 Group B USA: John Holder 1694-1784, m. Barbara Volck > John Holder b. 1725 > Jacob Holder 1757-1828 (a Loyalist who moved from PA to New Brunswick, Canada, at the time of the American Revolution) > Samuel Holder. As expected, this sample's closest Holder match is #73. The data have not yet been added to the Group B page.
#105 Group D USA: Henry Crockett Holder 1857-1927, Sevier Co. AR > Sabine TX. The closest matches to this sample are #60 and #72. The data have not yet been added to the Group D page.
#106 Group P USA: Unknown. This person is a close match for sample #49, but does not have the surname Holder. He has left the project.
#107 Group D USA: John Holder , from Missouri. This sample's closest matches are in Group D2. The data have not yet been added to the Group D page.
#108 Group W USA: George Holder, b. before 1755, lived Duplin and Sampson Counties NC; will dated 1799, Sampson Co. NC > George Vincent Holder, Duplin, Sampson, Cumberland and Harnett Counties NC > Wiley Holder > John V. Holder. This sample matches #91 and #101.
#109 Group D USA: This person joined the project in March 2016, but tested only 12 markers. Based on those, he appears to be in Group D2. We have no ancestral information yet, and the data have not yet been added to the Group D page.
#110 Group D USA: Jeptha Holder (1774-1748) North Carolina > David Meredith Holder > David Michael Holder. This family lived in Randolph County NC. This person shares ancestry with sample #18.
#111 Group D USA: Louis Thomas Holder b. about 1828, lived Madison Co. AL. This sample appears to be in Group D2c.
#112 Group D USA: No information yet.
#113 Group D USA: unknown The donor is an adoptee whose research is still in progress.
#114 Group D USA: Robert Francis Tapscott 1817-1874, Virginia. The DNA for this sample is clearly Holder, with the closest matches being samples #5 and #19. Tapscott family researchers think that Robert Francis Tapscott was the son of a man named Holder.
#115 Group D USA: John Henry Holder 1860-1912, Franklin Co. TN to. Coffee Co. TN > Claude Holder (1884-1936) Coffee Co. TN to Garland Co. AR. This sample's closest matches are #37, #46, #71 and #92.
#116 Group D USA: James Holder (1808-1855), Burke Co. NC > James Calvin Holder (1838-1895) Caldwell Co. NC.
#117 Group F. USA: George Holter (abt. 1750-1820), Maryland. This sample resembles #81, also a descendant of George Holter, and #10, whose name is Holder. Another sample from a man named Holter does not match these, or any Holders.
#118 Group D USA: John Holder (1795- ) m. 13 Dec 1812 in Pittsylvania Co. VA to [Amelia / Permely] Pamelia "Permelia" Cox. Sample #70 shares this family history.
#119. The donor has not made his information available yet.
#120. USA: Although the donor is named Holder, the DNA profile matches other surnames, including Shotwell, Grady, Gill, Troglin, White and Trogdon.
#121. USA: This sample is a close match to #85, whose ancestors are from Alabama. Both donors are named Holder, but their other matches are to other surnames. Durden occurs frequently among the matches.
#122. USA: Luda Holder b. 1827 SC or GA, d. 1862 in Atlanta from war injury; m. Martha Cook in Carroll Co. GA, 1846. This sample matches #97, who shares the same ancestry. No group designation has been assigned yet.
#123 Group A USA: This sample is a perfect match for sample #1 over 25 markers. We have no ancestral information yet.
#124. USA: The donor of this sample is not named Holder, but his more distant Y-DNA matches over 67 markers include samples #8 and #72. The genetic distance suggests the most recent common ancestor with these two persons lived at least several hundred years ago.
#125 Group D USA: Joseph P. Holder (1797-1881) Virginia > Searcy County, Arkansas. This sample shares family history with #35.
#126 Group D USA: No ancestral information is available yet.
#127 Group D USA: Although the donor of this sample is not named Holder, his DNA matches other samples in Group D.
#128 USA: This DNA donor has Holder ancestry in New York and New Jersey, and does not match any other sample to date.
Several other men whose surname is not Holder have also affiliated with our project, but since none of these matches any existing Holder sample, and we've received no ancestral information indicating a male-line Holder connection, they have not been assigned sample numbers.
